Volume II - Ana Navas & Marisol Rodríguez

Volume II - Ana Navas & Marisol Rodríguez

Over the course of two months, Ana Navas and I developed the following dialogue. Made through a back and forth of emails, our conversation was greatly enriched by visits to her current studio at the Fondation Fiminco (2020-2021) in the outskirts of Paris, where I saw her works on different stages of development and in between lockdowns.

Born in Ecuador but immigrated to Venezuela at an early age, Ana Navas is a nomad. Her references are abundant, her works often deceiving as they juggle with the languages of modern art turned kitsch, and of contemporary art turned the lingua franca of global marketing. Hiding beneath mysterious surfaces and provocative forms is a carefully constructed imaginary that resonates beyond geographies one that questions our own stance on this hyper aesthetization we’ve become so accustomed to, so versed in. 

Ana and I enjoyed exploring all these ideas together. Hopefully this format can help you, the reader, discover her work and thoughts more naturally. Welcome then.
